Ok, maybe I didn't express myself with enough clarity. I meant that we 
have the composite viewer in one place and the tracking/masking tools in 
Since viewers and image analysis tools live currently in the UV/Image 
editor, I proposed to take masking and tracking there, but maybe it's 
better to have a specialized viewer window (perhaps the same clip 
window) and take the viewer and image analysis tools from the UV/Image 
editor to the clip editor window.
The point is having masking and tracking also available for composites, 
not just for clips. And having both operations working as nodes instead 
of separated tools would be more flexible because you could feed those 
tools with both, footage and (pre)composites.
